Beginning January 1, 2017, the City is shifting from property-tax funding of stormwater services to a dedicated stormwater service fee.

Council’s approval of staff’s recommendation to shift to a service fee to fund stormwater services was made following more than two years of study and community consultation.

The City and its consultant, AECOM, are exploring options for stormwater service fee credits. Credits would provide property owners with opportunities to reduce stormwater runoff on private property for a credit.
